‘The fight absolutely continues’: Reality Winner out of prison on supervised release as family seeks Biden pardon

Former intelligence specialist Reality Winner has been released from federal prison into supervised custody as she completes a five-year sentence after pleading guilty to leaking top-secret materials about Russian hacking attempts against US elections systems, according to her attorney.

Her attorney Alison Grinter Allen confirmed her release to The Independent.

She remains in custody and is in a residential reentry process, her attorney said in a statement.

“Her release is not a product of the pardon or compassionate release process, but rather the time earned from exemplary behavior while incarcerated,” Ms Allen said.

Ms Winner’s family has pressed for a full pardon from President Joe Biden, arguing that “Reality has served a lot of time and gone through quite a bit of trauma to fight for essentially one man’s feelings about his election’s validity,” Ms Allen told The Independent. “It’s the only way to make this right.”
